I was born and raised in Effingham and graduated from Effingham High School. I started working at the Effingham Daily News in 1970 in high school where I worked 10 years in the composing room then became a sports reporter in 1981. I was the Daily News sports editor for three years before quitting in 2010.
I started working at Premier Broadcasting fulltime, July 6, 2010. I figured somebody needed to try and straighten the Morning Show guys out! I work two nights a week at Martin’s IGA Plus.
I have two brothers, Jim who owns Lange Electric here in Effingham and Tom who lives in Wichita, Kansas. I'm not married but have two children (actually dogs, Snickers and Crackers). I love trivia contests and am a member of a team that travels around getting beat all over the area. Okay, maybe we win once in a while. I also love gardening, sports, scrapbooking, traveling, antiquing and watching Ghosthunters. I'm a member of Green Thumb Garden Club and the Effingham County Cultural Center and Historical Museum Association.
I'm a member of First Baptist Church and teach kindergarteners in Sunday School with Evelyn Loy. The kids never cease to amaze us and we love the hour each Sunday we spend with them.
